A very modern Composition

Themes are completely fitting here: there is that charm coming from the wall with the seemingly peeling paint (I am actually not sure whether this serves only as an promotional background or wether it is a "real room" with much energy given to make the wall actually look ragged).

The point is that the painting on the wall called White Wall is part of my Remininscences series, a painting series, that was created from my photo documentary about the Olympic Student Village in Munich, that has been torn down last year in order to be re-constructed.

In order to create a kind of memorial for the beautiful and often funnily painted walls which are now all lost I took hundreds of photos from the village. But this was not enough for me - I also decided to create a painting series from the most impressive and beautiful parts i.e. walls, doors and windows. The peeling paints and especially the marks all the vines left on the plaster created wonderful patterns and structures. There is an extra photo series only about these wall motifs which you will find here.

More about the painting itself and the whole series you can find under this link or you can click on the photo below.
